PostSubject: GNamer Forum Awards 2018   Sun 16 Dec 2018 - 18:44

The end of 2018 is coming up fast.  Ladies and gentlefolks, I present to you the biggest GNamer event of the year (after the meet-up (and perhaps the Secret Santa (and probably that one other event I've forgotten)))...


THE ANNUAL GNAMER FORUM AWARDS VI


Votes are due in by Sunday 13th January 2019 - that's a whopping four weeks!  Definitely enough time for you to forget this is a thing consider your votes carefully and get them in!  

Comments, as ever, are greatly welcomed - even for the tagline vote.  They add a bit of colour and WORDS EVERYWHERE-ness to the results.  But, as always, you don't need to add comments and you don't need to vote in every category and if it says '(x votes)' then x is a maximum and you can submit fewer.  

All awards are one vote unless stated otherwise.  There have been a couple of alterations to the voting since last year, so please do read the below.  Please also let me know what you think about the new slate!  Feedback is much welcomed.  If the feedback is vehement enough then there's still time for changes to happen.

I do think the whole I played something like The Gardens Between on PS4 but because it's on a Nintendo system I have to vote for it in the Nintendo section is utter bobbins.

Should be played on a Nintendo system goes in Nintendo, played on a PS4 goes in Nontendo.

Ah, I do enjoy this end of year awards! I'm looking forward to the gaming votes a bit more than last year personally - I do think the podcasts/Admintendos and what-have-yous took the wind out of the sails of those categories. Now, to get to voting!

Mas: You'd just be dividing the vote for a game that plays exactly the same on either platform. That's my two cents on the matter at least and I stand behind that reasoning.

And voting threads held just afterwards... Embarrassed

Also: that's the way GNamer works as a whole. A theoretical thread on TGB would go into Switch, not Nontendo. Discussion would go in the Switch sub-forum whatever you played it on.

Also also: there's a specific disclaimer saying that you can put your vote into either category, but you risk splitting up a vote and we advise you to put it in Nintendo. If you want to stick a protest vote in Nontendo for TGB, I'll roll me eyes but I won't not count it.

If that's the reasoning then it may as well just be Top 10 Games regardless of system which would guarantee no split.

I wasn't planning to vote in the forum section this year and I was going to vote in the games section as voting for X game over Y person is a little different but I don't think I'll be doing that either on how the games section are being ran.

Hope it all goes well for you guys for those that do take part.

I've said my bit and I'll have a think about it but just seems silly to me I could vote for 5 games I've not played on Nintendo in Nintendo and vice versa along with thinking where should I vote for The Gardens Between in Nintendo or Nontendo, where will others vote for it to not split the vote.

Now I could vote still how I personally feel, so just likes of SMASH in Nintendo and The Gardens Between in Nontendo where I played.

I can't ask for much else.  Hopefully the awards descriptions and guidelines provided will avoid splitting the vote without requiring too much thought: that's why they're there!

Any thoughts (from anyone, not just Mas) on the rejigged other awards?  Anything drastically missing?

Everything is terrible. We had a Forum Awards last year, it's undemocratic to do it again this year.

That's a fair criticism, I'm undermining the will of the people by asking what the will of the people is.

Instead, we've decided that funniest forumite will be decided by a panel consisting of Jacob Rees-Mogg, Boris Johnson, and RichardUK from GRcade. After all, no funniest forumite is better than a bad funniest forumite, unless we change our minds on that.

I might be wrong but I think Richard UK might be Top Hat Gaming Man/Person.

Top Hat far as I know from his wrestling persona is called Richard Parliament and is proudly British.

Richard UK I believe is called Richard Parliament and is proudly British.

It might be a amazing coincidence and might be wrong about Richard UK's surname.

Thinking about it and your RE part Balla does make some sense and would feel I'm letting the forum down.

I do have some questions though to do with the games awards.

1. Remakes/Remaster are those allowed eg Shadow of the Colossus, Pokémon Let's Go, Dark Souls?

2. Ports this is mainly for Nintendo but if I buy and play Firewatch could I count that even though it's almost 4 years old?

I know when I do my personal stuff on the blog / YouTube, I won't count any of the above as I do feel it's odd saying the best game of 2018 is from 2006, makes the year sound a bit shite and I know the devs aren't going to check out my little slice of the internet but I reckon they'd also feel a bit shite.

Onya Mas. Smile After all, you're the current holder of the current most prestigious GNamer Award!

1 yup, 2 yup. Ports that are new to the specific machine in 2018 and remakes are both eligible. Maybe not a 2017 PS4 game that's been ported to XB1 in 2018, but I'll leave that to y'all to decide. I'll edit the OP accordingly.

Deciding not to include them on the grounds that it makes the year look a bit shite is perfectly valid too: I've definitely docked games points for being ports in other votes.

I can give you some sober thoughts now I guess.

You might as well have dumped contributor, it always felt like a quantity> quality award. In fact, by the same logic we ditched forumite oty, we might have ditched all single-person awards and just had posts, threads and the forum itself. Oh well, whatevs.

REIGNING FORUMITE CHAMPION. FORUMITE OF ALL TIME.

I agree with you Drunka even being the defending champion, as in previous years I've won because of the release topics along with sheer number of posts.

Which okay is a lot of contribution which on those grounds you see why I've won, that I would have been more than happy to see that award goes as well.

I'm glad you both said this (even though I personally think there's a place for valuing volume), because the rearranged Contributor award is designed to value quality (on the forum) as well!  Please do have a look at that if you haven't already (everyone not just you two), it is quite different to the CotY award you know and love/loathe from previous years.

This... is a bigger thing though.  It's almost certainly not going to happen this year (not unless people really pull for it - anything can happen), because it's such a drastic change on top of the drastic changes we've already shoved in.  That said, I would be interested to see whether other people agree, so do mention it in the general votes chat thread.

It's the last day of 2018!  So you should hopefully pretty much know what you're voting for now.  

We're currently still on three votes.  One from me, natch; one from somebody who doesn't feel they've seen enough of the forum stuff to have an informed opinion, which is fair enough but uninformed opinions are also welcomed; and a very meaty Hogmanay roast of an offering.  Cheers to the two of you!

Thanks James J. Moyles! The rest of you (Mas and OR aside):


One week remaining. It really would be great to see everyone who's logged on as far back as October voting in this.

Don't like votes? Think of it as a celebration of the community instead; or just don't vote for everything.

Don't think you know enough about the community? I've chosen October specifically: if you fit in that criterion, I reckon you've seen enough to count. Even if you don't visit everywhere on the forum, your niche knowledge matters!

Haven't been bothered to yet? That's fine, just get them in by next Sunday! Might be a good idea to ponder them beforehand though? Oh, and I'll be in a place to post up results from quite early on Monday, so don't leave them until halfway through Monday please.


Four votes so far: more greatly appreciated thanking you!
